Truck rack

As promised, here are pictures of the rack that my dad and I built for my dakota. The side rails and rails behind the window are removable (sort of, screws and some considerable force might be required to get it out of the holes). I'm able to strap just about anywhere on the back of the truck now. From the factory, the dakota only has tie-downs in the floor of the bed making strapping something tall very difficult. I feel better that I won't kill someone with my stupid hobby now :)

Twilight Zone home safe and sound

I picked up my Twilight Zone from Arnie's place Sunday afternoon. Arnie lives in the same town as my dad so I spent the weekend with family. My dad and I spent all day Sat building a rack for my truck. I sure made getting the two machine home a lot easier and safer, and it was really nice to spend a wonderful day with my dad. I'll post pictures of the rack later.

This game is HARD. I moved the outlane posts in tighter because they drained so much. The scoop needs adjusted because about 60% of all balls coming out of the slot machine scoop go SDTM. The trough proximity sensor keeps flaking's the connector, they all do that from what I read. I'll have to take it out and solder something else on.

The machine is way nicer than I thought. When I agreed to buy it I had only looked at it for a second while in Arnie's garage. He wasn't sure he wanted to sell, but emailed me a couple of days later and told me it was mine if I wanted it. Well, after getting it home, the only flaws I can find are the chunk out of the front of the cabinet and the repro translight.
